Ralph Nader On The Problem Of ‘Macho’ Hillary Clinton – VIDEO


Independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader is attacking Hillary Clinton..

The fact that he’s criticizing Clinton isn’t news. It’s the way he’s choosing to criticize her. It isn’t surprising or even newsworthy that he’s attacking the former New York Senator and former Secretary of State for being a “deep corporatist and a deep militarist” who’s made peace with the nation’s power structure. But he didn’t stop there. He took it a step further by resorting to blatant sexism (emphasis mine):

This is the problem of women trying to overcompensate and becoming more aggressive and macho so they are not accused of being soft on the need to kill and war, right? Instead of taking the tradition of women of peace, and turning into a muscular waging of peace of conflict and prevention, she [Clinton] did the reverse, and [Madeline] Albright did the reverse and Anne Marie Slaughter did the reverse and some of Obama’s advisers did the reverse. We have to be transcendent on this. We have to really go right to the core of what people are standing for, fighting for and fighting against.”

Evidently Nader is now an armchair psychologist and proclaims Clinton’s political postures are based on gender. According to the failed presidential candidate, she’s simply trying to wave her imaginary dick around to prove she can hang with the big boys.

This is a seedy tactic of the lunatic right-wing and the ramblings of a failed, bitter candidate.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a problem with Nader criticizing Clinton. But his tactic is misogynistic and low. It would be tantamount to Hillary Clinton saying Nader only ran for president to make up for his inadequate man parts.

Like her or not, Hillary Clinton is fearless. She has always been fearless, and her incredibly impressive resume is not a result of her chromosomal make-up. It’s a result of her intelligence, her capabilities, and who she is as a human being. Nader’s pathetic attempt to assign gender roles to world leaders is proof positive that the fear of women in power, whether it’s subtle or blatant, is alive and well, particularly in American politics.
